A telescopic denture is considered a good alternative to the conventional removable dentures as they provide better retention, stability, support, stable occlusion, decrease in the forward sliding of the prosthesis, and better control of the mandibular movements because of the proprioception feedback which increases the chewing efficiency. Well, fabricated prosthesis with good clinical and laboratory expertise and maintained with excellent care can be a successful one. The fabrication technique

Mucormycosis is a rare fungal infection of the craniofacial region and lungs. An upsurge in the cases of mucormycosis was observed in the patients who had a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection.Infact in India, mucormycosis was declared an epidemic during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic. Rhino-orbital and cerebral regions were most commonly involved and very few cases of mandibular involvement have been reported in Post-COVID-19 Mucormycosis in India. Herewith, we report a case of isolated m

Isolation is the major thing in the quality of treatment. But often clinicians consider rubber dam use can cause anxiety and fear evoking stimuli that may hamper their rapport with the child and thereby affect the quality of treatment. This creates a reluctance among practitioners to use rubber dams in the pediatric population.The aim of the study was to assess the anxiety levels in children in the age group of 6 to 10 years undergoing dental treatment with or without a rubber dam using the Anim

The preservation and reproduction of optimal pink & white esthetics are the fundamental aspects of the rehabilitation of a patient, but this can be difficult to achieve alone from both surgical and prosthetic viewpoints. Esthetic rehabilitation can be done well with proper planning. The best outcome can be achieved only through a multidisciplinary approach. A 17-year-old female patient reported with a chief complaint of missing teeth and an unpleasant smile. Clinical examination revealed a r

The present study aims to investigate and compare the effects of rind and pulp extracts of Citrullus lanatus on Streptococcus mutans in vitro. The pulp and rind extracts were prepared from fresh watermelon at four different concentrations of 25µl, 50µl, 100µl, and 150 µl, respectively. Four wells on each of the four MHA plates smeared with Streptococcus mutans were loaded with the prepared extracts such that two plates housed four different concentrations of each extract.

Anatomy of the buccal bone plate in the esthetic zone of the maxilla indicates its susceptibility to significant resorption after the extraction of a tooth. Immediate dental implant placement helps to maintain the stability of the surrounding tissues but is incapable of stopping the resorption entirely. This systematic review aims to compare two major surgical protocol factors that could impact the amount of bone remodulation after immediate dental implant placement - full-thickness flap elevati

Sex hormones play an important role in periodontal health and disease. For example, puberty, menses, pregnancy, menopause, and oral contraceptive use influence a woman’s periodontal health by causing a biological impact on the periodontal microbiology, by altering gingival cell function and vasculature, the local immune system and thus affecting inflammation process. Therefore, it’s crucial to assess awareness about hormonal effects on periodontal health in women and educate them abo

Children with CP are at a higher risk of poor dental health and systemic health implications due to their impairment. Past and present caries experience, nutrition, fluoride exposure, presence of cariogenic bacteria, salivary state, and sociodemographic variables are all factors in the development of caries. Oral drugs with xerostomia potential used over an extended time, promotor dysfunction, and a lack of regular oral hygiene are additional risk factors. A systematic literature review from 200
